    BACKGROUND

     

    -       Ms. Berden filled the vacancy caused by Ronna Romney McDaniel’s election as Michigan Republican Party Chair this February.   

    -       Hundreds of activists gathered at Boyne Mountain Resort May 8-9 to begin plans to win elections in the upcoming election cycle.  Republican activists gathered from across the state to hear from some our nation’s top campaign strategists about the upcoming election cycles.  State Committee members laid the groundwork for upcoming elections and looked forward to hearing from several presidential primary contenders. 

     

    -       Last week, Michigan had three Presidential candidates—Dr. Ben Carson, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, and Gov. Scott Walker—visit Republican voters in the state. Next week, Carly Fiorina will also visit Michigan.
